;;; C comment mode - An auto-filled comment mode for gnu c-mode.

;;; I have written a "global comment" minor-mode which performs auto-fill,
;;; fill-paragraph, and auto-indentation functions.  This function only
;;; works for comments which occupy an entire line (not comments to the
;;; right of code).  The mode has several options set through variables.
;;; If the variable c-comment-starting-blank is non-nil multi-line
;;; comments come out like this:
;;; 	/*
;;; 	 * Your favorite 
;;; 	 * multi-line comment.
;;; 	 */
;;; otherwise they look like this:
;;; 	/* Your Favorite
;;; 	 * multi-line comment.
;;; 	 */
;;; If the variable c-comment-hanging-indent is non-nil K&R style comments
;;; are indented automatically like this:
;;; 	/* my_func - For multi-line comments with hanging indent
;;; 	 *	     the text is lined up after the dash.
;;; 	 */
;;; otherwise the text "the text" (!) is lined up under my_func.  If a
;;; comment fits (as typed) on a single line it remains a single line
;;; comment even if c-comment-starting-blank is set.  If
;;; c-comment-indenting is non-nil hitting carriage return resets the
;;; indentation for the next line to the current line's indentation
;;; (within the comment) like this:
;;; 	/* Typing along merrily....
;;; 	 *     Now I indent with spaces, when I hit return
;;; 	 *     the indentation is automatically set to 
;;; 	 *     ^ here.
;;; 	 */
;;; Due to my lack of understanding of keymaps this permanently resets M-q
;;; to my own fill function.  I would like to have the comment mode
;;; bindings only in comment mode but I can't seem to get that to work.
;;; If some gnu guru can clue me in, I'd appreciate it.
